Our school aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and open-minded lifelong learners who aspire to build a better tomorrow, through a supportive, respectful, and caring environment promoting learning through sharing.
what we believe for our students
At Sharing School we believe in Learning Through Sharing to build a better future
We inspire and respect each of our students for their individuality, understanding how they feel more confident and comfortable in their learning process, sharing and feeding our core values.
Caring about one-self, caring about others and caring about the environment. The development of Care can be achieved through hands-on activities such as the care-taking of other living beings or by cultivating ecosystems, planting and harvesting food responsibly and developing a sustainable mindset. Most of all, caring seeing and being seen – where everyone helps, trusts, and looks after each other, giving the necessary confidence and empowering students.
Our multilingual and multicultural students and the focus of cultural interaction and global citizenship is at the heart of ISS. Sharing is also about being inclusive, accepting and enriching ourselves with our differences, sharing what makes us special and building a new common identity. This crucial value can be seen throughout all the learning environments at ISS.
Showing generosity and companionship to your fellow students and the surrounding community is an important ability to learn as young. The focus on hospitality also helps to emphasize the sense of belonging through empowerment and shared resources, also developing a familiar feeling within the school.

Our flexible learning spaces have been designed to suit each student’s individual needs
More than having a student-based curriculum, we have a student-based school, organically designed for our students. We provide an innovative educational experience for students to explore learning and to fuel their creativity and imagination
As a multicultural community with 60 different nationalities, we are prepared to communicate with parents in English, Portuguese, Mandarin, Russian, German, French and Spanish. The school-parent communication via emails, online platforms, parent-teacher meetings, and events is in English, but we are available to support non-English-fluent parents in a language they feel more comfortable whenever possible.
My child doesn’t speak English. Can he/she apply?2022-10-24T11:15:10+01:00
Yes, depending on the grade level your child is joining. Although we recommend students have a good level of English, English fluency is not a mandatory prerequisite for admission in Primary School.
